The Queen City Balladeers is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the traditions of roots music — what is known as Americana music these days — and folk performance in Cincinnati. The Queen City Balladeers’ primary event is the Leo Coffeehouse, held almost every Sunday night from September through May at the Zion United Church of Christ at the intersection of Mound and Montgomery in in Norwood. Door open about 5 p.m. for set-up; there is a song circle/jam that starts about 5:30 and runs until 6:45; performances run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. For information the Sunday evening performers, check the Leo Schedule. The Queen City Balladeers comprises people from all backgrounds and age groups. Many Balladeers are part-time or full-time musicians, writers, instrument makers,  and sound technicians as well as those that are just avid fans of roots/Americana music.
